I am very interested in this topic .How did I miss this ? I will definitely check this out . The situation is definitely more complex than is usually presented .
Not only did Stalin, and then Hitler kill the Ukrainians, but the various resistance groups fought each other , as well as the Germans , and then the Soviets ! It was only a couple of YEARS after the war that Stalin was able crush the last Ukrainian resistance groups . And added to this is the sad and ugly, Polish/Ukrainian thing .
A book I found illuminating was "No Simple Victory" , by Norman Davies .
Could go on forever on all this . Thanks .
